I'm a published wedding and portrait photographer located in a small town outside of Charlottesville. In addition to capturing beautiful images, I love spending time with my family, am freakishly good at word games (Hey Wheelmobile!), love an ice cold can of Coke or Dr. Pepper, know every line to Hocus Pocus and can never pass up a Chick-fil-A waffle fry or a trip to HomeGoods.
I love tacos and taco salads, but sometimes I just don’t feel like making them from scratch. It’s not that it’s hard, because it really isn’t, but more than it can be time consuming especially on a night when you get home from work late, your spouse is at a meeting and you don’t feel like cooking.
In comes the easy chicken taco salad. It’s easy because it’s mostly pre-made and only requires a little prep time. Here’s the recipe:
See? Super easy. It’ll likely only take 10-20 minutes depending on if your chicken is refrigerated or frozen. I often buy the refrigerated bags of chicken strips when they’re on sale and store them in the freezer until I need them. Besides a taco salad, you can use them for quesadillas, regular salads and more so they really come in handy. Plus, if you have a Harris Teeter, the Purdue version is often on sale, plus Harris Teeter doubles coupons up to $.99 so you can really end up getting them super cheap, which I love.
Be sure to let me know how your super quick and easy taco salad goes and I’d love to hear any other super quick and easy gluten free recipes you might have.
